Jolly Springtime

Jolly Springtime

Oh! The jolly Springtime
in the merry month of May
Oh! The heavenly hours
Oh! The come again day

Oh! The jolly Springtime
in the merry month of May
Oh! The heavenly hours
Oh! The come again day

Let the day run long
let the river run high
that tomorrow may live
so much yesterday died

Let the resin risin up in the tree
make the green leaf bud
bird and the bee and the fish in the sea
feelin it in my blood

Oh! The jolly Springtime
in the merry month of May
Oh! The heavenly hours
Oh! The come again day

Yes the winter was bitter and long
so the spring’ll be sweet
come along with a rhythm and song
watch Creation repeat

Thin, thin the moment is thin
ever so narrow the Now
Everybody say got to live in today
don’t nobody know how

Oh! The jolly Springtime
in the merry month of May
Oh! The heavenly hours
Oh! The come again day

Oh! The jolly Springtime
in the merry month of May
Oh! The heavenly hours
Oh! The come again day

James Taylor
